dump_sockdfc - Display contents of frozen configuratyion file for
dump_sockdfc reads in a frozen configuration file for the SOCKS server
and produces a listing of its contents on the standard output.
The argument is optional; if omitted, /etc/sockd.fc is assumed.
The frozen configuration file is produced by make_sockdfc and is
essentially the memory image of the parsed configuration file. Using
the frozen configuration file can reduce the start-up delay of the
SOCKS server program since it no longer has to parse the file contents.
When the SOCKS server starts, it always looks for the frozen
configuration file /etc/sockd.fc first. If that file is not found, it
then tries to use the plain-text configuration file /etc/sockd.conf. If
you use frozen configuration, you must remember to run make_sockdfc
every time after you modify the plain-text file or the SOCKS server
will continue to use the frozen file of a previous configuration.
